Bat Control Services

High Quality Wildlife Control Services In MN

Experienced Bat Removal & Prevention

Bats. Most Minnesotans enjoy having them around… but not too close. The thought of bats eating mosquitoes and other insects is comforting, but living with them is another story.

Bats very commonly reside in structures, causing damage or health risks, and could possibly gain access to the living space. Many times, the first indication to a homeowner of a bat issue is the appearance of a bat that has entered the living space from the attic area.

Other indicators include scratching, squeaking or clicking sounds in ceiling / wall areas or visible accumulations of bat droppings on the exterior of the home.

Our professional Wildlife Control technicians are trained and certified in structural bat management, zoonotic diseases and safety protocols. We have the knowledge and experience to properly remediate any bat issue.

Services:

Inspection

The first step in any bat remediation program is to conduct a comprehensive inspection of the property. The inspection will cover the exterior of the structure, the attic area, and any interior space that the bats have harbored or entered (when relevant). The inspection will be used to identify all active bat entry locations, as well as any secondary or potential entry points that exist on the structure. Following the inspection, our technician will discuss their findings and compile an itemized remediation quotation. This proposal will outline all recommended bat eviction, exclusion, repair and disinfection measures.

  • Exterior inspection: This step is very important, and must be thoroughly conducted. Bats can enter any gap or crack that is 3/8 inch or greater, or any hole a little larger than a dime. We inspect the entire roof area including the gutter line, soffits and fascia, roof venting systems, all dormers and any other abutments to the structure. We also inspect any roof line penetrations such as plumbing soil stacks, chimneys and furnace vent pipes. Attic vents, gable vents and ridge vents are also inspected closely as they are very common bat entry points. Active bat entry locations will often exhibit droppings on the exterior near the entry, and rub marks or staining from the oils on their fur deposited by squeezing into narrow openings. All issues on the exterior of the structure relative to animal ingress would be identified and noted at the time of inspection.    
  • Interior attic Inspection: Technicians inspect the attic area to determine the level of activity, both historically and currently. Common signs of bat activity in the attic include droppings and urine staining, trails in the insulation and rub marks at roosting locations. Any damage observed in the attic such as large accumulations of bat droppings, compressed insulation or compromised attic vents will be noted as well as any sign of other current or prior animal activity.

Eviction and Exclusion

The next step of a bat remediation program would be to perform the bat eviction, exclusion and repair work. To evict the bats, we install one-way exit valves at all active bat entry locations.The one-way valves allow the bats to exit the structure at those preferred locations, but not re-enter. All other secondary or potential entry points must be sealed during the installation of the one-way exit valves. This process is called exclusion. The exclusion of secondary and potential entry points is vital because the resident bats that are evicted from the one-way valves are acclimated to that site and will be actively seeking another way in. They can sense the drafts coming from these areas, and follow them back in. Should other access points remain open, the eviction process would not be successful. 

The one-way valves are left in place for a period of time to allow all bats to exit, then removed and those areas secured as the final step of the eviction and exclusion process.

Sanitation and Disinfection

Bat droppings have the potential to carry and transmit various zoonotic diseases such as histoplasmosis. Our technicians have received Zoonotic disease training from the National Wildlife Control Operator’s Association (NWCOA). This training provides our technicians with the knowledge to address these zoonotic risks, protecting your family and property from the unseen dangers they pose. It is important to disinfect areas where technicians will be working on exclusion measures, and anywhere accessible that bats were urinating and defecating. This makes the structure safer for both occupants and workers, and decreases the likelihood of potential disease sources from within the attic space, including non-removable elements like joists and framing lumber. 

Severe bat infestations with large accumulations of droppings and urine may require a full cleanout, disinfection and sanitation of the affected space. Attic spaces containing large areas of damaged/soiled insulation can be remediated by removal of all droppings and contaminated insulation, disinfection of the affected area and re-insulating the attic upon completion.
